Of all the northern fells in the Lakes, Blencathra is undoubtedly one of the finest. There's something for everyone here - an easy and enjoyable hill walk for families, the classic scramble on Sharp Edge for those who like a challenge, and the finest pub the Lakes for when you finish in Threlkeld.
This walk starts and finishes in Threlkeld, and takes the walking way up. If you want to do Sharp Edge, ask the bus driver nicely if you can get off near Scales Farm.
